    Marta SL with CODA rotor?

    i have a 2000 F2000 SL volvo cannondale team bike, and it has coda disc brakes on it. im switching to a marta SL, but would like to keep my wheelset. my current wheelset is 4 hole, and of course the marta is 6 hole. i was wondering if i could keep my current wheelset and run the coda rotor. as long as it doesnt rub the outer body of the marta caliper, i dont see any reason i cant.

    can anyone help me out?

    if this wont work, i was going to laser cut some custom 4 hole rotors like the marta SL's, but only with 4 holes. make them out of Ti or 400 series stainless.

    please help, thanks

    as long as the rotor is 160mm and the brake surface is close to the same ist fine.The marta rotor is 2.0mm wide a lot of other rotors are 1.8 mm wide you need to replace the pads a little earlier if you use a thinner rotor to prevent the pistons from coming out too far.
